Enemy Territory

Thought I would give this online gaming malarkey a try so I started with this freebie - what a blast!

Mostly had no idea what the heck I was doing :? and got killed on average every 3.5 seconds (well that was what it felt like). Sure I was holding the rest of the team back but they were polite enough not to point that out to me... Wink

Anyways can anyone recommend any servers for newbies and also any websites of a "how to " nature?

Cheers.

Hi there,

For server with less experienced players on I always find the jolt public ones are pretty good (not the ones associated with clans). To get then download ASE and then just look down the list of servers (you can sort by name) - easier than the in-game server browser.

As for a how to .. dunno really, you just gotta play a bit and get better. One tip I will give is that if you have a pair of headphones then use them cos you can hear what direction people are coming from better.

But do check that you are wearing them the right way round or the "Baddy" coming from your right will shoot you from behind when you turn to face him :roll:

One way is to use the audio set up with MSN Messenger or Windows Messenger. That will let you find out which is the left and right earpieces for sure.

One think you could try is find a server no one else is playing on and try out different things on that. Change the keys so they feel right for you. train jumping, ducking, etc and using the different types available. soldier, medic.
It takes time and while those ips may help you get used to the keys and what type of solider to pick, the only way to improve is to get stuck in.

Good luck.

I always found a good tactic when learning was to follow someone who looked like they knew what they were doing. Not too close - that way if they get blown up, you can watch from a safe distance Smiley

I too am a newbie and downloaded ET and it is great, but sadly I still seem to get killed every few seconds. Very frustrating, but I think I am getting better! As Josh says you just have to keep playing and playing.

Does anyone know how to bind the inbuilt messages i.e "Sorry", "I'm a medic", etc to the function keys on my keyboard? I'm sure it's dead simple, but I haven't worked it out.

Hi there,

This article discusses how you bind actions to keys in Medal of Honour, and since ET uses the same game engine the process will be the same - although the names of the actual commands may change.

My advise is to join an empty server armer with this information and then mess about a bit.

Very nice community, and the players really aren't that easy to kill, especially on avalanche only Wink

If you want noobs (and adverts) UK2 is a good place to play.

It's a free game AND it's free to play on servers.
If you play on linux it's totally totally FREE
If you're not then you can download the windows version of it from one of the many mirrors on this page http://www.splashdamage.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Downloads&file=index&req=viewsdownload&sid=1

Americas Army is also totally totally free in that you can download it for free, play it for free and it runs on linux. get that from www.americasarmy.com

and when you've read all that then you can come play on our server any time..........................lmao, oh btw clan servers dont mind noobs too much we need some canon fodder, lots of clans have thier own E.T web sites so it pays to get to know who your trying to kill, most clans are very curtious and are always looking for new members, imho, you wont find a better FPS. come and get slaughtered theres no better way of learning, lots of servers play with no team damage and large teams if your a noob i suggest learning on one of these, NETPLAYUK, is good for noobs because of both these aspects and its awards system has been accelerated so is very easy to progress skill wise. last tip for all who dont know any better, use Teamspeak whenever possible, find it here http://www.goteamspeak.com/news.php, on pub servers some have an open teamspeak channel so you can speak to your teammates, no lag its amazing for team battles, its hard to believe that the game is free, the servers are free to play on and all patches downloads and new maps are free, and so is Teamspeak and All Seeing Eye,absolutely everthing you could possibly need to play, FREE !
